The Vision of the War, Endemic Hunger and the Holy Father in Prayer

«Another time (Lucy writes), we went to the cave called Lapa do Cabeço. As soon as we got there, we prostrated on the ground, saying the prayers the Angel had taught us.
«After some time, Jacinta stood up and called to me: Can’t you see all those highways and roads and fields full of people, who are crying with hunger and have nothing to eat? And the Holy Father in a church praying before the Immaculate Heart of Mary? And so many people praying with him?

«Some days later, she asked me: “Can I say that I saw the Holy Father and all those people?” No. Don’t you see that that’s part of the Secret? If you do, they’ll find out right away. “All right! Then I’ll say nothing at all.”»1061
This second prophetic vision, like the first, has undoubtedly not yet been fulfilled. The horrible war in question is undoubtedly the future war we are threatened with. As for the Holy Father «praying before the Immaculate Heart of Mary», we may believe that he is the Pope mentioned in the Secret: «In the end... the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me.» Did Our Lady perhaps reveal to Her little confidante what a tragic situation we would be in when the consecration of Russia, requested so insistently by Heaven since 1929, would finally take place? «They will do it, but it will be late», Our Lord told Sister Lucy.
Only the disclosure of the third Secret, and fulfillment of the events predicted, will give us the whole truth about these visions of Jacinta. Be that as it may, the lesson Lucy wished us to draw from these accounts is simple, and more relevant and urgent than ever: we must pray, pray much and offer sacrifices for the Pope. Although in her Memoirs the seer could not reveal the reasons for her insistence – which undoubtedly directly depend on the revelations in the third Secret – she at least wished to set before us the moving example of her little cousin. Along with concern for saving sinners from hell, the thought of the Holy Father was what preoccupied her the most, surely because she knew of events that we did not – she knew what dangers, temptations and finally what terrible persecutions the Holy Father would have to put up with and suffer before the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
«This gave Jacinta such love for the Holy Father that every time she offered her sacrifices to Jesus, she added: And for the Holy Father. After the Rosary, she always said three Hail Marys for the Holy Father1062
Shortly before he died, Francisco said to Jacinta and Lucy: «It won’t be long now before I go to Heaven. When I’m there, I’m going to console Our Lord and Our Lady very much. Jacinta is going to pray a lot for sinners, for the Holy Father and for you. You will stay here, because Our Lady wants it that way. Listen, you must do everything that She tells you!”»1063
When the Blessed Virgin told her that soon she would leave for the hospital and that she would suffer much there, Jacinta said to her cousin:
«... I’ll be there suffering all alone! But never mind! I’ll suffer for love of Our Lord, to make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the conversion of sinners and for the Holy Father1064
A few months later, in July-August of 1919, the prophecy of Our Lady was fulfilled. Jacinta went to the hospital of Vila Nova de Ourem. Lucy could only visit her twice. She says:
«I found Jacinta joyful as ever, glad to suffer for the love of Our Good God and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for sinners and for the Holy Father. That was her ideal, and she could speak of nothing else.»1065
When she returned to Aljustrel, Jacinta continued to think often about the events announced in the Secret:
«Don’t be afraid, she told Lucy, in Heaven I’ll be praying hard for you, for the Holy Father, for Portugal, so that the war will not come here, and also for all priests1066
Finally, a few months before her death, shortly before she left for Lisbon, Lucy asked her:
«What are you going to do in Heaven?» «I’m going to love Jesus very much, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary too. I’m going to pray a lot for you, for sinners, for the Holy Father, for my parents and my brothers and sisters, and for all the people who have asked me to pray for them...»1067
Although Lucy is always discreet when referring to herself, she shows us that she shared the intentions of her cousin. When she was overwhelmed by visitors and pilgrims who came to interrogate her and ask her to pray with them:
«I repeated my usual prayer from the depths of my heart: “O my God, this is for love of You, in reparation for sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the conversion of sinners and for the Holy Father.”»1068
Similarly in the immensity of her sorrow at the death of her father:
«My God! My God! I exclaimed in the privacy of my room. I never thought You had so much suffering in store for me! But I suffer for love of You, in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Holy Father and for the conversion of sinners.»1069
Lucy even goes so far as to write:
«... There was not a prayer or sacrifice we offered to God which did not include an invocation for His Holiness1070
This preoccupation, which is so surprising for such young children, is perfectly understandable if the third Secret mentions explicitly – and with details striking to the imagination – possible defects of the Supreme Pontiffs and the persecutions they will have to undergo later on (because of these failings). Moreover we find explicit mention of these tribulations that the Popes would undergo in the dramatic prophecy of Our Lord to Sister Lucy at Rianjo, in August 1931:
«Make it known to My ministers that, given they are following the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My request, they will follow him into misfortune. It will never be too late to have recourse to Jesus and Mary.»1071

What misfortunes is Our Lord referring to? Undoubtedly it is the third Secret which provides the answer.

Pray the Most Holy Rosary for the proper & valid Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Pope (the Vicar of Christ) together with all the Catholic Bishops - This is Heaven's Peace Plan and God's Solution!
